THE FORTNIGHTLY GENERAL MEETING
Our most prominent activity is a fortnightly meeting on Thursday afternoons at the Harpenden Trust Hall. Here we usually have a speaker, followed by a discussion, or a session involving members' contributions. The meetings start formally at 2.15pm, but you will find much conversation going on from 1.45pm onwards, before we turn to the topic for the afternoon, and also afterwards as people continue to chat before dispersing.
VISITS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES
From time to time we arrange visits to places of interest, either on a Thursday afternoon or extra to the programme. These might involve a charge for transport or entry fees. Sometimes, for a nearby location, members might make up car-loads. See below under Outings for the next Visit planned.
We buy tickets on a group basis for the National Theatre or other productions, several times a year. We get good seats at a modest price, and enjoy seeing a play in good company, and talking about it afterwards. Each occasion is announced at the Thursday meeting, and in the Programme/Newsletter. Also details are given on the notice board at the Thursday meeting.
